Contents:
Introduction to MHD / Jean Heyvaerts -- Magnetic reconnection : classical aspects / Clare E. Parnell -- Structuring of the solar plasma by the magnetic field / Pascal Démoulin, Karl-Ludwig Klein -- Structuring of the magnetospheric plasma by the solar terrestrial interactions / Dominique Fontaine -- Self-consistent kinetic approach for low-frequency and quasi-static electromagnetic perturbations in magnetic-mirror confined plasmas / René Pellat [and others].
Summary: Annotation The book contains courses taught to a public of Ph. D. students, post-docs & confirmed researchers in all fields of heliospheric plasma physics. It aims at identifying physical issues which are common to two different fields of astronomy: solar & magnetospheric physics. Emphasis is given to basic processes of transport & conversion of energy: magnetic reconnection is discussed in detail from the viewpoints of MHD & kinetic physics. Processes of charged particle acceleration are reviewed & compared with recent observations. The subject is introduced by a summary of MHD, & the basic structures & parameters of the solar atmosphere, terrestrial ionosphere & magnetosphere are reviewed. The book combines a pedagogic & comprehensive presentation of physical issues & raises fully open questions, with the complementary & sometimes conflicting views of geophysicists & solar physicists. The book's focus, while basic, opens new avenues.
